Alghero is situated in the northwest of Sardinia. It was founded in the 11th Century by the Genoese. 300 years later the Catalans conquered the town of Alghero and developed the fortress. Until today the influence of the Catalans is visible. The streets and the places often wear Catalan name and the Catalan flag is everywhere present.
These horse-drawn wagon can be rented for having a ride through the town.
The promenade of the fortress invites you to linger....
There are also some old "missiles".
